Old Beads Hausa-Fulani Tribal Necklace from Nigeria

This wonderful long necklace was handcrafted by the Hausa-Fulani Tribes in Nigeria using multiple strands of old African trade beads. The beads were originally made in Venice during the 1800's or early 1900's and traded to this region shortly thereafter. 

The favored bead colors used in Hausa-Fulani jewelry are characteristically unusual, muted but with a richness and depth that makes them uniquely beautiful. The tufted back is an extra touch occasionally seen in Hausa-Fulani Necklaces.
